Meet John

Founder and Creative Director

A little about me…

I own and operate Graphikitchen, a web design and graphic design studio based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I started my career as a professional chef, and supervised kitchens for Clarion, Marriott Hotels, Radisson Hotels, Muer Restaurants, and the U.S. Navy Department of Morale, Welfare and Recreation.

I transitioned out of my culinary career and into graphic design in 1997. I returned to school, and learned the ropes at local print shops, advertising agencies and design studios. I opened Graphikitchen in 2001, and it has since evolved to include website development and design. I continue to serve clients throughout the United States and Europe.

I now reside on the Old West Side of Ann Arbor, and I’m a husband, a dad, a pizza scientist, and amateur competitive softball player.

If you want to talk websites, SEO, graphic design, branding, book design, or just how I can help out, feel free to contact me.
